? >> reporter: good morning to you, charlie. fbi still hasn't made it to the crime scene in benghazi. secretary clinton will give a classified account of the attacks on the u.s. consulate in libya. witnesses tell cbs news that there was never an anti-american protest outside the consulate. instead they say it came under planned attack. that is in direct contradiction to the administration's account. that comes with complaints that the administration has not been forgetright. >> i'm just stunned and appalled that there wasn't better security for all of the american personnel at that consulate, given the high threat environment. >> now under law, state must establish a panel to investigate the attacks, report to congress within 60 days. today, secretary of state hillary clinton will outline what she is and is not willing to share. what's clear, charlie, is that the public won't get a detailed account of what happened until after the presidential election. >> margaret brennan, thank you. senior correspondent john miller, former assistant director of the fbi is with us. good morning. >> good mornin
people. >> charlie, will we see a coordination between the fbi and american official who are coming and the libyan security officials in benghazi? >> reporter: yes, from what we understand that investigation is already under way. interestingly, we didn't see investigators at the compound. yes, they are spreading out throughout the benghazi area in the hunt for the people that are responsible for this, but the eyewitnesses we spoke to said it was a rally. it was an anti-american protest, but it was largely peaceful. what happened after that seemed to have been guided, and it wasn't out of anger. this wasn't a rally or an anti-american protest that exploded. this seemed to be an attack on the u.s. consulate. >> thank you very much. senior correspondent john miller, senior director of national intelligence along with lara logan. good morning. what do we know about the people behind the attack in benghazi? >> not much. i mean, right now we're in the stage, a critical stage, of attribution, which is how do we figure out who it was if it wasn't a spontaneous mob? given the equipment, the
the libyan people. >> charlie, will we see a coordination between the fbi and american officials who are coming and the libyan security officials in benghazi? >> reporter: from what we understand from libyan officials we've spoken to, that investigation is already under way. although, interestingly, we didn't see any investigators aat the compound, but yet they are spreading throughout the ben z gazi area. it was a rally, anti-american protest, but largely peaceful. what happened after that seems to have been guided and it wasn't out of anger. this wasn't an anti-american protest that exploded. this seemed to be an attack on the u.s. consulate. >> thank you very much, senior correspondent, john miller, along with chief correspondent lara logan. good morning. >> good morning. >> what do we know about the people behind the attack in benghazi? >> not much. we're in a critical stage of attribution, which is how do we figure out who it was if it wasn't a spontaneous mob? the people who showed up after the demonstrators with the guns, it was much more likely it was an organized group. tw
absolutely does not have the evidence to assert that link right now. remember, the fbi has to make the determination. they're still not in benghazi. the state department will say, though, that al qaeda called aqim very active in the region and they're up in arms coming from mali into libya and this is one of the countries where you have a new government that isn't fully in control of the area. >> they don't have the evidence and waiting for the fbi to investigate and do they have anything that suggests there might be a link? >> they don't say that they have evidence either way. what they do know and will talk about is that one of the extremist groups in the area who is believed to be behind this, but they still do not have the evidence to assert that at this point may have some relationship with al qaeda. they just can't say either way. the fbi has to go and do this investigation and they have the accountability review board that hasn't begun its investigation yet and we might get the results going into congress until the spring. >> good to see you. >>> with us, arizona senator joh
's going on? why can't the fbi get in there and do what they were sent there to do? >> the security situation on the ground there is so brittle that the libyan government is very reluctant to have a team of a couple of dozen fbi people go into benghazi when the only people they could get to protect them are the militias. right now they don't trust any of the militias. the key militia that's in charge of protecting the hospital where the wounded were taken from this attack is suspected to be behind the attack. that crime scene's long ago compromised, trampled through, looted. it may or may not yield anything terribly important. if it does, it will yield it later. it's a difficult situation. >> is there any more information on this question of how much this may have been a pre-planned attack? >> there is, and i think you've kind of put your thumb on the pulse of the problem there because in these groups we look for -- we want a wearing diagram. we want an organized picture. it was al qaeda who ordered it. it was this group that assisted. the problem is the lines are blurred between th
of the air force, the head of their cia, the head of their fbi, and the former heads of those agencies all are outspoken publicly against that policy. they think the best policy is to work with the united states to coordinate our efforts in a way that achieves the maximum best result at the least cost. >> mm-hmm. senator mitchell, it's always a pleasure having you here. thank you so much. >> thank you. >>> let's bring in cbs news political director john dickerson who's following the political fallout from the middle east protests. good morning, john. >> good morning, norah. >> we've seen how foreign policy on the front page, which has shifted this debate a little bit, how much does that affect these two campaigns? >> it depends how long it goes on. for the president if this is a protracted problem with images on the television screens all day long, it's a problem for him. one in that he can sort of stumble into unforced errors. two, that it could connect to a larger feeling that the romney folks have been trying to brew up for a while now, which is just there's a sense of disappointment wi

, what happened there. they say it's off limits because it's an intelligence matter. the fbi isn't even in benghazi yet. they have not secured that site which is how journalists can wander through and have picked up -- >> "the new york times" is reporting today, "new york times" reporting today in a major column on a major story, attacking libya was a major blow to cia efforts. that was an important place. they were watching important terrorist activity. those cia agents have been compromised in terms of f their ability to do what they wanted to do. >> there, i'm sure, are many agencies active in that area. the responsibility for security for the ambassador and his staff falls -- and diplomatic security which is part of this state department, which is why they are under fire and why there's so much pressure to fill in some of the blanks. journalists are trying to do that. we know the state department has to produce a report in 60 days to congress. it's not clear how detailed the information is going to be. >> a lot more news this week. margaret, thank you. good to see you. >>> southern
